The National Park Service is considering new regulation that would severely curtail the right to protest. Reactions to these new regulations have been overwhelming. The comment period closed on October 15. We don’t yet know the total number of comments received, but so far the NPS has counted over 71,000 comments. This count is still growing.
If a new set regulations passes, activists will face serious hurdles in organizing protests on the National Mall or at the White House, potentially making such demonstrations a thing of the past. We need your help in defending the right to protest. The National Park Service is asking for comments on their proposed regulations and they need to hear from. You have until October 15 to submit them.
On September 27 at 7 pm eastern/4 Pacific, join the nation’s only coalition dedicated to fighting back against anti-protest legislation at our next webinar, about bills aimed at protests at fossil fuel pipelines.
The fact that they were introduced is troublesome and dangerous. It is through protest, an essential part of American life,that we are given the ability to speak out and challenge events and injustices. That power should be protected, not infringed upon, so that it can continue to shape and influence our American polity.
The National Park Service wants to start charging fees to hold protests on the National Mall as part of a new set of regulations the agency is proposing. They are also eyeing new restrictions on several public sidewalks in DC overseen by the Park Service, including in front of the White House and in front of the Trump hotel.
